If your church’s services include copyrighted music, a church streaming license is required to webcast or stream those services.
Who is eligible for the WORSHIPcast License?
Churches and most 501(c)(3) non-profit religious organizations located in the US or its territories are eligible for this license. Colleges and universities do not qualify.
